strategy, but it may also signal a larger pivot. call it obama 3.0, "washington post" writes this budget request reflegts obama's stark shift in strategy. he's begun a charm offensive in hopes they, the republicans will take seriously his offer to overhaul entitlement programs in exchange for increasing tax revenue. obama's aides have not been optimistic about the prospects for a deal but they argue that his strategy of outreach coupled with public events offers the best path forward for progress. the white house may see the con sill terry approach as the best path forward, but what is the end game when the goal posts are set in the middle of the field. ezra klein writes notice "washington post," the upside of the strategy is clear -- obama gets caught trying on a budget compromise. by starting in the middle, liberals worry that obama risks pushing a final compromise to the right. if the left is unhappy, what of the right this morning, house speaker john boehner issued a statement suggesting president obama isn't making a serious offer at compromise. if the president believes these modes
president obama heads to colorado to push for new gun control legislation. but he's coming under some serious fire for using decades-old information to sell a key part of his plan. we're live from washington. >> president obama barack obama continues his pressure campaign on a reluctant congress to pass federal gun control legislation. he's heading to colorado to meet with police and local lawmakers displaying a gun control package signed into law by governor john hick looper, yet his arguments are supposedly full of stale statistics. 40% of all gun purchases were made without a background check, but that number is almost 20 years old. >> why wouldn't we want to make it more difficult for a dangerous person to get his or her hand on a gun? why wouldn't we want to close the loophole that allows as many as 40% of all gun purchases to take place without a background check? why wouldn't we do that? >> that 40% bit was pulled from a study where 251 answered the question about where they got their guns. now we're hearing from groups like the washington gun association. members held a press

'm very hopeful that we can get this passed. >> dana milbank writes in "the washington post". obama on guns too little too late. on almost every topic from budget negotiations to national security, washington seems only to act these days in response to crisis if it acts at all. obama errored in trying to use newtown to build support for his positions on taxes and energy and immigration and he compounded the error by sending j joe biden to conduct a study. once the president took his foot off the accelerator no other action not even michael bloomberg's ad campaign to maintain the momentum. mark kelly has been, obviously, outspoken advocate on gun control legislation and he has been going around and buying guns and showing how long it takes to fill out a background check. i think it was like five minutes and 36 seconds, just if you care. if you can wait five minutes and 36 seconds for your gun. >> so i'm hearing behind the scenes there is still a deal that is being worked on universal background checks but yesterday it sound like it might be dead. >> they are still trying to figure ou

back to before the obama administration. is washington going to do, if anything, to answer andrew's question? the stock market going up, things improving and incremental ways richard said on a daily basis. anything washington feels need to be done to deal with the slow growth that has been around a long time? >> i wish i could be really optimistic. i'm not. i've been pessimistic this last while, despite the optimism of some colleagues about any sort of grand bargain. i'm certainly pessimistic about anything specifically trying to jump-start the economy, anything specifically that is a big enough debt deal to have big impact. i think we are going to bump along. i think we will bump through the next two near crises and then slide into spring and summer hoping that things slowly continue to get better for the foreseeable future. >> i'll be more skeptical which i actually worry that we are going to start seeing little trembles from the sequester and see it in the economic numbers and you'll see headlines, by the way, that is then going to scare the markets and you sort of have a littl

, greta. >> is the obama administration -- i read the front page of the washington post, above the fold, are they seeking to relax the lending requirement, urging banks to once again lend to people with weak credit? >> weak might not be the right word. they are encouraging people to people with good credit, 600, 650 scores. what's been happening, that lending hasn't happened. if you have fantastic credit, you can get a loan and the housing market is coming back. but the people in the middle range are having a harder time. if you don't have 20%, they are having a harder time. they are trying to get the housing market going stronger. >> do they want have fear in when i read the article, i thought -- we are not doing this again isn't problem is that when you bury people with debt, who can't carry it, they are doing at this time debt services, spending their mon oat debt service, they are not going to rev up the economy because they don't have the money to buy the toaster. and if they get over their heads and their houseses are underwater, they can't move to get a job if they lose a job bec
: joining us now from washington is bob johnson. so, here is what i don't understand. 93% of african-americans voted for president obama last november. even though black employment is so high. why? >> well, i think first of all, african-americans have immense pride in president obama as a president. they see it as a major accomplishment in this country and embracing an african-american leader. and they are positive and hopeful, probably, more than anything else, that his leadership will make their lives better. >> bill: all right. but it didn't turn out that way. i mean he had four years to improve the black unemployment rate. and it's not improving. so, you are saying that african-american community en masse is voting on hope. they hope it's going to get better but it certainly hasn't gotten better. >> yeah. i would say, bill, that african-americans hang under ts unemployment problem, this gap for over 50 years if you look at the bureau of labor statistics. >> i have them here. >> african-american unemployment has been double that of white people for over 40 years. >> bill: let me g

'cause i don't get that many vacations. >> you know, i go to alaska to see my family, but-- >> once a year, maybe twice. >> no, i get to alaska a lot. i have two little nieces i have to see. but, my point is, i just, the idea that you're getting upset about the girls, i have a real problem with. and-- >> i'm giving you the same picture, i'm giving you biden's trips and hotels bills. and obamas, they can't go to the same location an
vote, even that i.d. from the state will not be good enough anymore under the new law. in washington, d.c. at the federal level, president obama has just established a bipartisan commission to try to fix what has gone so wrong with the basic running of the elections in this country, but in the states where they're actually making policy on these matters, already this year we have seen 55 measures introduced to make voting harder. not easier, harder, in 30 states. it's as if republicans in state legislatures looked at the debacle of 2012, the stay in line election and lawsuits over new requirements for voting and couldn't wait to order a second helping for that. today, arkansas republicans finished passing laws to make voting harder, a democrat governor vetoed the bill, but they overrided it, so it will be much harder to vote in the great state of arkansas. ige virginia, there was not even that last barrier of a governor. lawmakers passed their voter i.d. bill, and bob mcdonnell signed it, and that was it, let's make it harder. joining us now is a virginia state senator, and an opponent
us now from washington ace reporters carl cameron and james rosen. how seriously, rosen, is the obama administration taking this north korea deal? i mean, these people really can't do much damage. they can invade south korea. they will get their butt kicked, right? >> well, they can inflict a lot of damage. they don't have the missile technology to strap one of their nuclear weapons to a missile and hit our shores, but the bottom line to answer your question is u.s. officials take it very seriously. both, a, because they have nuclear weapons. they have an army of over a million men. we have 28,000 troops stationed in south korea and also this is a cash starved regime that has never met a missile or nuclear technology that it didn't want to or try to sell. proliferation is is a big concern. i have talked, bill, to the guys that have actually dealt face-to-face with the north koreans, we don't have diplomatic relations with the north koreans, but we do have something called the new york channel which operates through the auspices of the u.n. in new york. i have talked to the guys who ha
a overlooking. >> chris: no doubt. [ laughter ] >> i just have to get that in. obama runs in 2008 as a man who is going to change our politics. he is only going to implement new ideas. he is going to change the way washington works. and the essence of the corruption he was attacking was the money. so, number one, in 2008, he is the first who refuses public financing for his campaign. he raises a billion dollars. and now what he is doing, he is campaigning, look where he is in the third of the month in the second term, if there is ever a time in the 8 years when you would relax on the money and try to govern, it would be at this point. what he has done completely in contradiction to what he promised as a candidate in 2008, he institutionalized the permanent campaign. evidence is out there raising money at the beginning of the second term when he ought to be here working on the budget on sequester and all these other issues. but now he is the essence of exactly the system that he denounced and he promised he would messianicly redeem. >> chris: let me ask you about that marah and then we will go
, they talk about michelle obama. there are so many outlets that traditionally have no interest in washington because washington is traditionally thought of as boring and stale. but the sex appeal for better or worse, in the past four years has significantly upticked. >> from politico this evening, from the click column people watching in washington, d.c., the head library is that the daughter of senator mccain gets a tv show. we go to glen. >> thank you very much. i want to say about the comment about the appearance of politicians and that kind of thing. one, i guess that means the old chi shea that politics is -- chee shea that politics is show showiche that politics is business. over.gly people is i kind of disagree with you. i don't care what these people look like or anything like that. i don't think most people do. underestimating the audience, which i think is a big problem. that's where you get a lot of this nonsense because of the powers at be, what sleep shea you want to use -- cliche you want to use. by and large, most people wouldn't if they thought it has a drastic impact on thei
for you just a bit of that op ed piece that he wrote in "the washington post" on friday. obama erred in trying to use newtown to build support for his positions on taxes, energy and eupl aeu congratulations and compounded the error by sending joe biden off to conduct a study, an unnecessary delay when solutions were obvious. once the president took his foot off the accelerator no other action, not even michael bloomberg's ad campaign could maintain the momentum. directed very much at the president there, jim. >> right although of course i hope hillary clinton loved that line about biden failing, didn't she? i think what's really happening also is a greater precision about what is going on. rand paul asked last week, look, show me one thing in these gun proposal has would have stopped these guys from killing. and i don't think anybody had a good answer to them. as a matter of fact will salatan at slate.com this morning went through the cases of jar rod laughner, james holmes and the guy in connecticut, adam lan today and said these people were all clearly mentally ill, they were crazy
debate on gun reform, president obama is looking for support outside of washington d.c. yesterday at a police academy not far from the site of last year's theater shooting in colorado, the president focused on universal background checks saying his goal is not to take firearms away from their owners. >> the opponents of some of these common sense laws have ginned up fears among responsible gun owners that have nothing to do with what's being proposed and nothing to do with the facts. but feeds into the suspicion about government. if there are any folks who are out there right now who are gun owners and you've been hearing that someone has taken away your guns, get the facts. we're not proposing gun registration system. we're proposing background checks for criminals. >> one of the most fascinating parts of the speech was when he talked about michelle saying if i lived in a rural area and i lived on a farm, i would want a gun in my house. he was talking about this is not about keeping guns away from people. michelle was talking to the president. the president by extension understan
